OXNARD, CA--(Marketwire - Jun 28, 2012) -   CalAmp Corp. (NASDAQ: CAMP), a leading provider of wireless products, services and solutions, today reported results for its first quarter ended May 31, 2012. Highlights for the quarter include:

  • Consolidated first quarter revenue of $43.9 million, up 27% compared to the first quarter last year; with Wireless Datacom revenue up 44% to $31.7 million.
  • First quarter GAAP net income of $4.2 million or $0.14 per diluted share, compared to $0.5 million or $0.02 per diluted share last year.
  • Adjusted Basis (non-GAAP) net income of $5.3 million or $0.18 per diluted share, compared to $1.4 million or $0.05 per diluted share last year.
  • Net cash provided by operations for the first quarter of $3.2 million, and total cash balance at May 31, 2012 of $7.3 million.

Commenting on the first quarter results, Michael Burdiek, CalAmp's President and Chief Executive Officer said, "We began fiscal 2013 with an outstanding first quarter where the earnings power of our business strategy was clearly evident. The Wireless Datacom segment posted impressive revenue growth of 44%, driven by strength across core verticals with continued momentum in Mobile Resource Management (MRM) and significant contribution from our Rail initiative. In the Satellite business segment, we were particularly pleased with the gross margin improvement to 15.8% and with its solid contribution to the bottom line."

Mr. Burdiek continued, "The maturing global machine-to-machine (M2M) ecosystem is opening up new opportunities to grow our business and engage with large enterprise customers. Our vertically focused M2M hardware and software platform strategy, as well as our strengthening wireless carrier alliances, are providing us with enhanced visibility into larger deals."

Fiscal 2013 First Quarter Results
Total revenue for the fiscal 2013 first quarter was $43.9 million compared to $34.6 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2012, an increase of 27%. Wireless Datacom revenue increased 44% to $31.7 million from $22.0 million in the same period last year, and Satellite revenue was $12.2 million compared to $12.5 million in the first quarter last year.

Consolidated gross profit for the fiscal 2013 first quarter was $13.7 million, an increase of $4.2 million over the same quarter last year primarily as a result of the higher revenue. The gross margin percentage increased to 31.2% in the fiscal 2013 first quarter from 27.3% in the first quarter last year primarily as a result of the significant gross margin improvement in the Satellite segment.

GAAP net income for the fiscal 2013 first quarter was $4.2 million, or $0.14 per diluted share, compared to net income of $0.5 million or $0.02 per diluted share in the first quarter of last year.

Non-GAAP net income for the fiscal 2013 first quarter was $5.3 million, or $0.18 per diluted share, compared to non-GAAP net income of $1.4 million or $0.05 per diluted share for the same quarter last year. A reconciliation of the GAAP basis pretax income to the non-GAAP net income is provided in the table at the end of this press release.

Liquidity
As of May 31, 2012, the Company had total cash of $7.3 million and an outstanding bank term loan of $2.8 million. Total debt outstanding at the end of the first quarter includes the $3.1 million carrying amount of a note payable issued in May 2012 in connection with the previously announced Navman Wireless asset purchase and supply agreement. Net cash provided by operating activities during the first quarter was $3.2 million, and the unused borrowing capacity on the bank revolver at that date was $9.2 million.

Business Outlook
Commenting on the Company's business outlook, Mr. Burdiek said, "Based on our latest projections, we expect fiscal 2013 second quarter consolidated revenues in the range of $41 to $45 million. We anticipate that Wireless Datacom second quarter revenues will be up moderately on a sequential basis and up significantly year over year, and we expect Satellite second quarter revenues will be up year over year but down somewhat on a sequential basis. At the bottom line, we expect second quarter GAAP basis net income in the range of a $0.09 to $0.13 per diluted share, and non-GAAP net income in the range of $0.13 to $0.17 per diluted share."

Mr. Burdiek continued, "CalAmp is now benefiting from its strategic focus on key market verticals that offer attractive long term growth prospects. Our competitive position in these verticals is strengthening as we broaden our product portfolio, exploit opportunities for integrated hardware and software solutions, and extend our market reach. The opening of our design center in New Zealand last month, as well as incremental investment in software resources, should give us increased capacity to bring innovative products to market and fuel the growth of our Wireless Datacom segment."
